Residents want speed bumps in Parkway Village neighborhood

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Parkway Village resident is demanding speed bumps in her neighborhood after a car crashed into her front yard, nearly hitting her home on South Goodlett Street.

The car landed in her front yard in the 3200 block of South Goodlett Street in Parkway Village on June 6.

The homeowner says she’s thankful no one was home when someone crashed into her front yard.

Residents are trying to get speed bumps.

A spokesperson with the City of Memphis says homeowners can request the city install speed bumps. The request then goes through the residential request program for evaluation.

“We don’t want a tragedy to occur because some fool wants to fly down this 35 per hour mile,” said Shamika Johnson.

This is the second time in less than three weeks that Parkway Village residents demanded speed bumps in their neighborhood.

Residents on Judy Lynn Avenue complained about speeders and cars doing donuts in the middle of the street and demanded speed bumps.

Several homes were evacuated in Parkway Village in a separate incident after a car hit a gas line, causing a fire three weeks ago.
